girl with a pearl earring

well i Have finally gotten a minute of "me" time to get away from the hustle and bustle to sit down and pop out a layout.
well this months challenge over at Artastic Challenge blog,is an inspiration drawn from Vermeer's painting - 'The Girl with the Pearl Earring'. Please note that Vermeer's painting was actually titled "The Head Of A Girl" (1666) but is
otherwise known from the movie with Colin Firth as "The Girl With The Pearl Earring".
Added criteria:
1. Single portrait style photo
2. An earring somewhere on the page

i used webster pages and incorporated silk flowers and antique flower buttons. i added a couple of peacock feathers that i Have been holding on to and i finally had the perfect chance to use it. i used ribbon and lots of pop dots and hot glue to secure everything in place.the earring is mixed in with the cluster of flowers on the top of the layout. the picture i used was another fav of mine from abby's first communion.

I hope you all enjoy this months painting and I look forward to seeing some really gorgeous entries.
